Subject: [anti-spam-wg] Domains with MX set to localhost


Hello!

Hi Yiorgos.


The past few months I observe a trend to have spam directed to us where the sender's domain has as MX either the localhost or 0.0.0.0.

As an example the domain yahho.gr (:-) has as MX mail.yahho.gr which resolves to 127.0.0.1.

Do you block such domains?

Partly. We always verify that the sender address accept email unless the customer don't want to.

Do you maintain a list?

Yes we have a cached list for this which autoexpires data 24hours after last time being accessed.
